  • Mile Sur Mera Tumhara: For anyone who grew up in India in the late 1980s and early 1990s, this video has significant meaning.  It was heavily promoted by Doordarshan (then India’s sole TV station), literally once every hour or so and thus imprinted on people’s minds. The song features people from all walks of life and promotes the idea that a modern India can find “unity in diversity”.  The story of the song has been written about in an Indian Express article. This song still echoes in my head and I use it as a teaching tool at Georgetown.
